Kimmel Mocks Young People’s Support for Obamacare

Jimmy Kimmel had some fun at the expense of young Obamacare fans, chiding them for blindly supporting the health-care law without knowing much about whether it’s in their best interests.

As part of the gag, Kimmel “introduced” a newly launched ad campaign by the Obama administration featuring an older couple explaining how younger people are actually paying for their coverage; one ad encouraged young people to “next time, maybe pick up a newspaper” so they’d understand the law.
